HARTLY, Del. (CBS) – A Delaware man trying to score a deal at a yard sale over the weekend ended up with his 9th DUI instead.
Around 3:30 p.m. on Sunday, troopers responded to a residence in the 900 block of Myers Drive for a report of a truck broken down in the driveway.
Upon arrival, police determined that 51-year-old Dale A. Guifoil, of Hartly, was attempting to leave a yard sale at that address when a mechanical issue prevented him from doing so.
A strong odor of alcohol was detected on Guifoil, who was seated inside his truck, as the officer was speaking to him, leading to a DUI investigation.
Guifoil was taken into police custody, where a subsequent inquiry into his driving record indicated eight previous DUI convictions.
Guifoil was charged with DUI (Alcohol), Possession of a Controlled Substance without a Prescription (Oxycodone), Driving While Suspended or Revoked, Failure to Have Insurance in Possession, Fictitious Registration, and Operation of an Unregistered Motor Vehicle.
